Necklaces, earrings, bracelets </p><p>and more are essential complements to a variety of looks. But these pieces can become dirty </p><p>and dulled with time. Follow a few simple procedures to keep your jewellery in good shape and </p><p>looking great. </p><p>Costume jewellery can be cleaned with any soap and water solution. Use a toothbrush to scrub </p><p>and get in the corners. You can also use a wooden toothpick to pry out the difficult bits of dirt. </p><p>Just be careful around the settings as they can come </p><p>loose. Also be sure to dry them thoroughly with a hair </p><p>dryer on low setting. Water residue can loosen the glue </p><p>that holds crystals and rhinestones in place. </p><p>More expensive designer jewellery should be cleaned </p><p>with a little more care. Diamonds can be polished very </p><p>effectively with a solution of warm water and ammonia. </p><p>Dip a cotton swab into the solution and gently clean the </p><p>stone to bring back its shine. Clean gold jewellery with </p><p>soap and water only. Other chemicals can discolour the </p><p>metal. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and scrub it very gently. Silver tarnishes on contact with </p><p>air and requires a specific material to clean it. </p><p>Use a silver dip for jewellery with silver only and </p><p>a polish for silver with stones in it. Never </p><p>immerse any stones or crystals in a silver dip; </p><p>instead, clean around them very carefully with </p><p>the polish and a soft cloth. Pearl and opal </p><p>designer jewellery is beautiful and also very </p><p>delicate. Try a very gentle soap, such as one </p><p>made for babies, in a warm water solution to </p><p>clean opals. For pearls, any soap and water </p><p>solution should work, but never use an abrasive </p><p>material to clean them. They scratch very easily. </p></li><li><p>When in doubt, take your designer jewellery to a </p><p>professional jeweller for cleaning. If you are at all </p><p>uncertain about the material or appropriate cleaning </p><p>technique, it is best to trust the task to the </p><p>professionals. They have sonicators, which use sound </p><p>waves and water, to gently remove dirt and grease </p><p>from the most intricate pieces. They will also be able to </p><p>tighten up any loose stone that you may not realize you </p><p>are in danger of losing. </p><p>Everyday wear and tear can dirty and dull your </p><p>beautiful jewels. The oil from your skin can build up </p><p>over time and cloud gemstones. Bring back their shine with simple, yet safe and effective, </p><p>cleaning methods. </p><p></p></li></ul>
